When we arrived in Girdwood, it was lunchtime, and too early to check into our b&b. So we headed to Jack Sprat for lunch. This place has a very good reputation, and the menu looked good. But the meal was kind of mediocre. We both ordered hamburgers, which came with brie and bacon and cilantro aioli. We were actually tired of fish at this point. But the hamburger patties were frozen and undercooked. And the meal was just kind of bland.

After lunch, we headed to the Alyeska ski resort, where we rode the tram to the top of the mountain.
From North to Alaska

It was a spectacular day, so the views were clear out to the horizon.

Doesn't this look like fun?

Dinner was at the famous "Double Muskie Inn" which has tons of hype, and is reputed to serve the best steak in Alaska. Ugh...they must not eat much steak in Alaska. They serve huge steaks, overcooked, dry, and probably previously frozen, slathered in nondescript brown sauce. Capitol Grill needs to open an Anchorage outpost I think. Maybe the Muskie had great food once, but not now, in our opinion. We did like the kitschy ambiance, and had very good service. Also the wine list is remarkable. So the dinner had some saving graces.
